Boston bean hotpot tonight - a bit like a bolognese but with baked beans and pasta in it. Tastes lovely when it's been slow cooked but just did it on the hob today. Delicious and my boys Hoover it up.

The dc are having lemon soles, floured and gently fried and fennel salad.

Me and dh are having cod fillets with potatpes and olives, and fennel salad.
